FPL GW12 Tips: Best Captain & Scout Squad

Best captain pick, one differential and scout squad. Those are our FPL GW12 tips.

Let’s dive in.

Tips for FPL GW12

Best captain pick for GW 12

3. Jamie Vardy (BHA (H))

After disappointing performance against Fulham, Leicester bounced back and managed to defeat Sheffield United in previous gameweek.

Foxes scored just 3 goals in those two games against bottom half teams. However, Jamie Vardy was involved in 2 of them (1 assist and one goal).

His importance for Foxes is undeniable. Vardy blanked only once in last 6 gameweeks.

And he is averaging amazing 7.3 points per match from the beginning of the season.

Leicester face Brigton in GW12 and if Foxes manage to score, there is high chance that Vardy will be involved again.

2. Heung Min Son (CRY (A))

A period of tough fixtures for Spurs is slowly approaching its end.

Tottenham face Crystal Palace in GW12, and we can again consider Harry Kane and Son Heung Min as captaincy options.

From those two, we almost always favor Korean as he as a midfielder gets extra points for goal and clean sheet.

Son is very explosive in terms of FPL points.

He registered 6 double-digits hauls in just 11 matches – he either blanked or register double digit points output this season so far.

Let’s see, whether he can repeat that again in GW12.

1. Mohamed Salah (FUL (A))

Vardy and Son are solid captain choices in GW12.

However, most FPL managers will be looking at Fulham vs Liverpool as a standout fixture for captaincy. So, do we.

It’s hard to look past Mohamed Salah as number 1 captain pick in GW12.

He has the fixture in GW12 and he has always been reliable captain option in last four seasons.

Salah is the best captain pick in gameweek 12 FPL.

Overlooked player

Pedro Neto (AVL (H))

Injury to Raul Jimenez opened doors to other Wolves assets to be considered as FPL picks for our teams.

Pedro Neto has been quite overlooked by FPL managers this season, although he is 10th most scoring midfielder with 53 points.

That is 4.82 points per match what is equivalent to 183,09 points per 38 gameweeks.

Wolves do not have great run of fixtures ahead in a longer team, but in GW12 they face Aston Villa.

Performances of Aston Villa have been very volatile recently.

However, they have lost 4 of their last 5 games and have kept just one clean sheet in that period.

So if you are looking for one week punt, do not overlook 5.6 million midfielder Pedro Neto who is owned only by 4.2 % of all FPL managers.
